Pope Francis ranked fourth most powerful person in the world by Forbes

2015-11-05

Forbes Magazine has named Pope Francis the fourth most powerful person in the world. It's the second year in a row he's been designated that high.

The publication described the Pope as someone who "preaches compassion for the poor and a greater role for women.” It added that he is transforming the Church's image.

They measured "power” four ways: how many people they influence; how much money they control; whether they're influential in different areas; and whether they actually make use of their power.

The Presidents of Russia, Germany, and the United States ranked ahead of Pope Francis. However, the Holy Father was determined to have more sway than other notables like Bill Gates and the President of China.

And the Pope also stands out as one of the most humble people on the list. He's the only one who took a vow of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
